Title: DHL Gateway Offices
Client: DHL Express Hellas
Size: 1.700 sq.m.
Description: DHL Express Hellas, decided the total renewal of their Gateway offices. A.R.I.S. was assigned to do all the necessary design studies (architectural, structural, electromechanical etc.) along with the on-site supervision. The project triggered our interest mainly because it was about a building within a building. The main office space is on the first floor of a big warehouse located in the Athens International Airport space. One side of the offices is looking into this warehouse area. The DHL gateway office design was a challenge on one of our main field of expertise, the research and development of evolutionary work environments. In the project we successfully implemented our studies on new strategic planning approaches, such as “flexible working places” and “mobile working”. Through this we were able to minimize the required office space and create interesting spots in spaces not so much naturally illuminated, whilst providing a variety of different work-settings in each space, available for all to use. Moreover we Designed a new training area having as source of inspiration the airplane containers known as ULD. Overall we believe that our design will be a prototype for the brands future designs.
